Domaine Sylvain Langoureau may not be a household name, we anticipate it will become the go-to producer for those who enjoy artfully crafted wines that combine a pronounced citrus element with crisp acidity and a touch of minerality. This family-run estate does everything by hand, is committed to low yields, and focuses on conveying each site's distinctive terroir. Sylvain Langoureau has been directing this 9 ha domaine since 1989 which he says is now farmed entirely organically.
A panoply of citrus elements, of which the most prominent is lemon, suffuse the ever-so-slightly exotic aromas of white peach, passion fruit and an interesting hint of tangerine zest. There is both good power and plenty of sappy dry extract adding a sense of volume to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that exude touches of minerality and warmth on the solidly lengthy finish. This too should drink well quite early.
